Fire Containment

Fire control is the practise of reducing the heat output of a fire, reducing the area over which the fire exists, or suppressing or extinguishing the fire by it of fuel, oxygen, or heat. In the event of a fire breaking out, Stroud Fire can assist you to take steps to contain a small fire (and smoke) and stop it spreading and becoming a major disaster.


Our fire door release systems are an essential part of your fire safety strategy. Fire door closers ensure that your fire doors close automatically in the event of a fire.



Fire Extinguishers help stop a small fire from spreading and becoming a major disaster. Portable fire extinguishers are an essential part of your fire safety strategy.

The problem is that invariably, during the course of a normal working day, every service engineer will come across at least one fire door held open with on of the following:

  • a door wedge

  • a waste paper bin

  • an extinguisher

Aside from the damage the door could do to an extinguisher, as well as the hazards associated with moving the extinguisher away from its recognised fire point, restraining fire doors in any of the above three ways will mean that in the event of a fire, that fire cannot be compartmentalised and contained, allowing fire to spread freely and rapidly

The Solution - Fire Door Retainer


Like a door wedge, an extinguisher or bin, a retainer will retain the door open to allow ease of access around the workplace.

However unlike these, should the fire alarm sound, the retainer will automatically release the door into the shut position to help contain the fire in a given section of the building.
